Women have a complex array of hormones that change constantly for most of their lives. These processes help the female body nurture a growing fetus, maintain sexuality, and provide optimal health. There are many instances however where the body can be in a state of imbalance.
We see hormone imbalance through a number of conditions:
Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome
Under Functioning Thyroid
Melting Away The Symptoms of Menopause & Andropause is Easier Than You Think
You’d be surprised how quickly you can restore your hormones to optimal levels and start looking better, feeling better, and living better, free of the Menopausal & Andropausal symptoms that haunt you.
Hormones decline with age:
Estrogen – declines 30% by age 50 followed by sharp fluctuation (Menopause)
Progesterone – declines 75% from age 35 to 50, then continues to decline
Testosterone, Growth Hormone, DHEA, and Pregnenolone – decline 50% from age 25 to 50 and an additional 50% by age 75
Melatonin – declines a small amount from age 25 to 40, followed by a sharp drop
Women who initiate hormone replacement under the age of 60 have an overall reduced mortality. (Study of 30 trials and over 26,000 participants – Journal of Internal Medicine 2004). Women are now living 30 to 40 years past menopause. This time in their lives needs critical attention.
